What we do Research, Education & Consulting Since 2010, the University of St. Gallen is represented in Latin America by the Hub office in São Paulo. As the years went by, the HUB grew to become the St. Gallen Institute of Management in Latin America (GIMLA). The tasks of GIMLA are threefold: First, it connects the University of St. Gallen to businesses and academia in Latin America by conducting cutting edge research on inclusive business, access to health care, and renewable energy and establishing knowledge exchange pools in the form of conferences. Second, it promotes and supports the exchange of students, researchers and professors between Latin America and Switzerland by offering traineeships, organizing executive education courses. Third, it draws know-how from its unique network of international professors, entrepreneurs, and previous experience to academically consult funds, corporations, and SME’s willing to spearhead inclusive projects in Latin America.
